Our purpose

The Alumnae Board is a group of up to 20 alumnae who work to support Mount St. Mary Academy. The Alumnae Board governs the Alumnae Scholarship, awarded to the relative of an alumna. The Board sponsors two four-year awards by fundraising, and oversees the award selection process. Additionally, the Alumnae Board assists the school in its endeavors, offering support and volunteerism as needed.

Want to join the Alumnae Board?

All graduates of Mount St. Mary Academy are eligible for membership. Here’s what it entails: attending four to five meetings per year, working at Alumnae Board fundraisers and attending MSM events throughout the year. Just like when you were a student, we ask for your active volunteerism, helping us promote, organize and operate alumnae board fundraisers which support the Alumnae Scholarship Fund. We also ask you to be an ambassador of the Mount within your community. Help us tell the good news of the school to neighbors, family, friends, classmates, thereby promoting and strengthening our Alma Mater for the generations to come.

Not able to commit to meetings but still want to participate? Consider joining one of our committees as a non-voting member and help us raise money for the Alumnae Scholarship Fund.
